Natural marijuana use in Connecticut has now changed and increased to synthetic marijuana or known as Fire, Genie, Sence, Spice, Silver, Spice Diamond and Skunk. It is anywhere from 4-100 times more potent than natural marijuana. It can be mixed with food, drink and can be smoked. Synthetic marijuana is causing harmful effects in people such as delusions, hallucinations, becoming violent, confused, nauseated, chest pain, heart attacks and difficulty breathing and even death. Connecticut has now made it illegal to have possession of or the selling of synthetic marijuana. On March 2, 2013 Connecticut State Police seized 22 pounds during a traffic stop with an estimated street value of $20,000.
